ALDI is looking at sites in Kidderminster and Stourport to open brand new stores.

The supermarket has announced plans to open 100 new stores across the UK in the next two years - including stores in Worcestershire.

Aldi has more than 920 stores across the UK now and is looking for freehold town-centre or edge-of-centre sites that are suitable for development.

The development will see 2,000 new jobs come to the UK in addition to 7,000 over the last two years.

Richard Thornton, Communications Director at Aldi UK, said: “We’re continuing to gain even more customers - with over 60 per cent of UK households shopping with Aldi in the last year.

“Our focus is on expanding our store estate, making sure Aldi is accessible to as many of these new shoppers across the country as possible. Looking ahead, we are excited to provide millions of new customers with access to Aldi’s award-winning quality and unbeatable value as we create even more places and more ways to shop with us.”
